Video Poker Is a Game of Skill
All this talk of poker being a skill game makes me sick.
Itâs trivial, and itâs not the most important thing to say about poker when it comes to legislation.
Thereâs an element of skill in video poker too, but itâs still a sucker game. Hereâs why:
- Video poker is unfair. Even if you make perfect decisions, you canât win.
- Video poker is antisocial. You play alone against a machine. Thereâs no exciting struggle between equal opponents.
- The skill in video poker is restricted to odds calculations. You donât need any psychological insights, thereâs no game theory, thereâs no tactics or strategy.
poker is more than just skill
